Abstract : 

What's happening with measles? It's a question we're asking all health professionals in the wake of the various news collected on the press and social networks since 2018, which generated confusion, doubts and unease in the population. An illness that seemed to have been almost entirely eradicated and of which hardly anyone talked about, giving way to more interesting and relevant illnesses like meningitis, pneumonia, influenza, human papilloma virus, herpes zoster virus, etc. However, since 2018, measles has made its presence felt, making the news almost daily in the media, generating concern in the Vaccine Evaluation Committee, Spanish Pediatric Association, public health experts, medical scientific organizations, nursing, and, surely, SEFAC.
